If You Witness A Crime

If you see or suspect a crime is being committed on campus, pay particular attention to the features of the offender(s) and any vehicles involved. Try to be prepared to provide at least the following about the offenders:

When reporting a crime by telephone, remain on the phone until the communications officer is fully briefed with all the information necessary to dispatch the appropriate response personnel to the scene.

  1. Age, race, height, and weight;
  2. Hair color and style, beard, and mustache;
  3. Notable characteristics (acne, scars, glasses, mental state, etc.)
  4. Clothing description;
  5. The location where last seen;
  6. Last known direction of travel;
  7. Vehicle description and distinctive markings.
Witnesses who wish to remain anonymous may do so. It is more important that a response be dispatched as quickly as possible.
